Personal Injury Attorney in Omaha
It is not fair when a person is seriously injured because of the wrongful acts of another. We all have a duty of care to each other - a legal obligation to use reasonable care in performing acts that could predictably harm others. Medical professionals, nursing homes, accountants, property owners, product manufacturers and some others are held to professional standards of care.
Personal Injury Services
When individuals or corporations fail in this duty of care, causing injury or harm, the victim has recourse under the law. At Bottlinger Law L.L.C., we help people who have been injured through the negligence and wrongful acts of others to seek full compensation in personal injury claims. Our personal injury law firm brings years of experience and knowledge to a range of personal injury matters, and we are driven by a passion to achieve justice for the injured.
As an Omaha personal injury law firm, we represent people in a range of personal injury matters, including:
No amount of money can take away your pain and suffering or erase the devastating effects a serious injury can have on your life. However, compensation recovered from the at-fault party can pay your medical expenses, reimburse you for your time away from work, and compensate you monetarily for your pain and suffering.
If you have suffered a serious personal injury, we strongly recommend that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible. Serious injury can mean extensive medical bills and lost income during the time you are unable to work. Some injuries can be permanently disabling and seriously diminish your future earning capacity. The time immediately after the injury is critical, and there is too much at stake not to take action to protect your financial future.
When we represent you in a personal injury claim, we will thoroughly investigate your accident or injury to determine what happened, and who was at fault. We will assess the full extent of your injuries and prepare a strong claim for compensation based on the evidence. Our knowledgeable personal injury attorney can negotiate skillfully with insurance companies on your behalf. If the other side fails to make a reasonable settlement offer, we can fight tenaciously for your rights in court when this is the most effective way to achieve justice and fair compensation.
Our state of Nebraska practices comparative negligence when determining compensation for personal injury cases. Simply put, comparative negligence is the concept that both parties may have been at fault in an accident and that compensation should scale based on how much fault can be attributed to each party.
For example, let us say that your vehicle was struck by an 18-wheeler when it was changing lanes. The fault may initially apply to the truck driver for not properly checking their blind spot. However, if you were speeding at the time of the accident and did not slow down to avoid the truck, you may be at partial fault for the collision. Under Nebraska’s negligence laws, a portion of fault would be applied to your compensation (between 1-49%) and instead of receiving 100% of your claim, you would only receive a smaller percentage.
In addition, if you were found to be 50% or more at fault for the collision, you would not be allowed to receive compensation for your injuries and damages to your vehicle, because in the eyes of the court you are the at-fault party. When reviewing your case, Bottlinger Law L.L.C. will work with you to properly examine all angles related to the accident and fight for the maximum amount of compensation available to you.
At Bottlinger Law L.L.C., you pay us no fees upfront to represent you in a personal injury matter. Our Omaha personal injury lawyers handle cases on a contingency fee basis - we don’t get paid until we recover compensation for you.
